My Client Reviews
Since he sold my previous residence in one day, I figured I'd give him another shot with my current residence. He sold it in one day. Now I know he doesn't guarantee and day sales but from my experience, if you want a one day sale, he's the best bet. Knowledgable, courteous, and responsive, Scott is the ultimate professional
Previous review from Charles H.
Scott is a very professional, reliable agent. He was recommended to me as a knowledgeable and trustworthy professional and he proved that . I wish we could have worked together longer, but he sold my unit in one day. I've already recommended him to others.
Scott was exceptionally knowledgable and professional. Always communicated the current status of our process and diligently worked to manage the seller and the mortgage company to meet our deadline.
As sellers, my husband and I chose Scott because of his moral and ethical values and integrity. Very early into our listing, COVID hit. We were fortunate enough to have one open house prior to the pandemic and a couple of showings when things eventually opened back up. Through this frustrating process, Scott remained calm, communicative, encouraging and just a class-act all around. His attention to detail, level of expertise for the process, keeping us informed and advocating for us was something we were so grateful for. We appreciated his honesty and his willingness to work with us in all aspects of the process. He was committed to helping us get our home sold for the price that we needed and he was successful. We are so grateful to him and his associates who helped during a trying closing process. We really just can't say enough about his character and how he not only represented us well, but also Coldwell Banker.
Our family had outgrown our previous home and we were ready to move. Scott gave us sound advice on what we needed to do to the home to give us the best price for our home. Then COVID hit. This gave us the opportunity to work on the items Scott advised us to work on until Real Estate opened up again. Once it did, Scott went to work and got our house sold in two days! Once our house was contingent, we knew we had little time to find our new house. As soon as a house came up that we were interested in, Scott got us in to see it, because he knew the market, and how fast houses were selling. Because of the limited housing inventory in the area we wanted, we were down to a few weeks before our previous house closed. We needed a place to call home, but we also may have needed a place to stay short term. Scott and his team went above and beyond to make sure our family had a home. They even went so far to find apartments that we could stay in until we found our home. Then it happened. We found it! It was Scott's quick action and negotiations that got us our home. We can't thank Scott and his team enough for helping us to buy the house we always wanted.
We are new to the Pittsburgh area and were looking for a home in a good neighborhood with a long list of wants. Scott helped us narrow down the search and his local knowledge and expertise were invaluable. He was available at all hours of the day to answer questions and give us guidance. He never once made us feel like we were over asking. He was honest with his opinion on if a house was right for us, his vast knowledge and extensive experience in the industry helped us feel like we were working with an expert. He made us feel like we were his top priority. I highly recommend Scott as a realtor, he will treat you well. We ended up in a house that has everything we wanted! Scott won't stop until he helps you find the home that is right for you and your family.
Scott sold and helped us buy our last home. We had multiple offers and the closings went off without a hitch. I was a nervous wreck and he kept me calm every step of the way!! Highly recommend!
Scott went about and beyond his responsibilities just to make sure I was completely satisfied with my purchase. Thanks Scott for your help.
This was the first time we used a realtor to sell a home. To say the least, we were clueless. Scott took us under his wing and guided us through a very trying time. His knowledge and skills were commendable. I highly recommend Scott and his agency for putting their customers first. We live in Cranberry and will be recommending him for all future clients that might come our way. Walt/Barb Smith
My wife and I selected Scott to list our home for Sell in September 2019. Scott led us through the entire process and at the end/final closing the saying, "that was easy" was a correct summary. Scott displayed all the competencies (local knowledge, professionalism, attention to detail, trustworthiness, communication, dedication, responsiveness, and negotiating skills) that a customer would hope for. We would and have recommended Scott to others interested in real estate transactions. It was a great experience to work with Scott and Coldwell Banker Real Estate Services!
Scott was amazing from the very first home visit until I finally found what I was looking for. I first viewed a home with him over a year ago, and for a long time my home search stalled, but when I started to look again he was ready to help. He went above and beyond every step of the way. He handled difficult situations with professionalism and helped me close as quickly as possible. He was a huge part in making my first home purchase go as smoothly as possible. The home I purchased was only on the market for 3 days, and had multiple offers, but Scott made sure to advise me on how to make my offer stand out to the sellers. I wasn't afraid to ask him questions about the home itself, and about the difficulties that come from being a homeowner. Thank you Scott! It was a pleasure.
Scott was a great help to my husband and me as we searched for our first house! He was always quick to respond to us whenever we had questions. Whenever we looked at houses, he really paid attention to the small details and would frequently point out things that we might not notice and tell us what that meant for us as buyers. He made the whole process incredibly easy. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy in the Pittsburgh area!
Scott is very dedicated to his clients, truly cares and treats you like your his family. I would give him more than the highest recommendation He goes out of his way to make the process of buying or selling your home as easy as possible. Scott is a upstanding caring gentleman.
Local knowledge: Process expertise: Responsiveness: Negotiation skills: Scott provided outstanding service in the sale of my Sister's home. He rates a 5 on all of the above, but I would give him even higher scores on Local Knowledge and honesty/integrity. I believe those are the most important traits to look for in an agent. Very pleased with the experience.
Scott did a superb job while working to help us sell our father's home. He was very knowledgeable, easy to work with and always willing to answer our questions in a timely manner. Ours was not an easy case. Scott handled the challenges of our unique situation with much professionalism.
Scott walked us through everything, is deeply knowledgeable and he always had our best interests at heart.
Scott was great to work with. He was right on the money with the selling price. The home sold very quickly. Scott got back to me right away when I had a question or concern. He absolutely went above and beyond. We were out of town and he volunteered to go into the crawl space to check on the water pipe to see if there was condensation or a leak. I can go on and on with examples of what he did to go above and beyond.....
Scott is a fantastic agent! He is very personable, resourceful, and respectful. I will absolutely call him first if I need to buy or sell again.
My experience with Scott was a totally satisfying one. He was friendly, knowledgeable, totally competent and willing to go above and beyond, including shoveling my driveway after one of the many snowstorms. I highly recommend him for all real estate needs.
It was a pleasure to work with Scott.His experience and professionalism was greatly appreciated
Scott just helped me and my FiancÃ©e find a new home and one word I can describe him is CARING, the reason why I would say this about him is because he made us feel like we were one of his family members and not someone looking to buy a home. He was more like a family member for us rather than a Realtor. I would high recommend Scott. In the past we've had a bad experience but he was able to step up and assist us in any way he could. Thank you again!
Scott is an exceptional realtor. He is professional, responsive, and knowledgeable. He made our buying/selling process super easy and enjoyable. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!
Mr. Zanella did a fantastic job selling our home! His professionalism and responsiveness were excellent. He was able to sell our home very quickly and we are more than satisfied with the services he provided. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
After interviewing several Pittsburgh area Realtors, we chose Scott for his professionalism and knowledge. We had the unenviable task of selling my ailing mother's house via long distance. He was incredibly responsive and went above and beyond many times. He took the lead by investigating and handling repair issues for us. He made sure we saved money where we could. Scott is a great advocate for his clients and we are happy to recommend him to anyone wanting a smooth and advantageous sale.
I have used Scott on both my inbound and outbound relocation. Scott is a pleasure to deal with and always finds a way to meet your needs. He is also very knowledgeable about the local area and gives you multiple perspectives.
Scott helped me through the process of buying my first house. He made it comfortable and easy. Not only did he allow me to look at a number of houses before deciding which one was the perfect fit for me - he listened to my needs and wants and helped me find the perfect first home. I highly recommend Scott to help you with your first home purchase.
